project morning at the farm

Mom and Dad were out to the farm today and we knocked a couple things off of the to-do list.  First of all I had loosened a tie rod on the mower and i had the front tires pointing in opposite directions.  Dad put it back together so I am going to be able to mow this afternoon.

Then Dad got out the sickle mower and mowed the part of the road ditches that we cannot get with the rider.  Here is a picture of Dad mowing the ditch.  Thanks Dad!!
Sorry Dad, I didn't get a picture of you lying on the ground putting the mower back together.

While dad was mowing Mom was doing some weeding with her electric weed-eater.

We have been digging up some hostas.  This corner was just too weedy.  Mom will be transplanting some of these at her house in town and some may go to the lake.  It is looking so much better.  Thanks Mom!!

We also got some measurements through the grove.  We will need 145 feet of hose or pipe to go through the grove.  Plus we would then need hose to get from the grove to the faucet or hydrant and hose to get from the edge of the grove to the far end of the cornfield.  Next step I will measure the lengths of hose that I have and Dad will price the PVC so we can make some decisions about the best way to go.  There are storms possible for tomorrow and the rest of the week so we have a little bit of time to figure it out.
